RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Two teams that broke a long string of consecutive regular season match ups this season will meet after all in 2016, and instead of a regular season game the state title will be on the line.
Collegiate beat Norfolk Academy 38-0 Saturday and Benedictine won 42-21 at Flint Hill to set up the VISAA Division I State Championship, which will take place at Collegiate on Saturday November 19th at 1:00 PM.
The Cougars and Cadets played each other every year until this season. The Cougars earned the #1 seed in the four-team state playoffs, while the Cadets earned the #3 seed. The Cadets are the two-time defending state champions and hope to win a third in a row. Collegiate hopes to win its first football state title since 2009.
